Volunteer valour on the Costa del Sol

AS with many disasters, the fires have helped highlight the positive aspects of human nature through the inspiring work of hundreds of selfless volunteers. 

One group of expats set up a remarkable website, sosandalucia.com, during the height of the fire in order to keep people informed of the fire’s many fronts.

Then in an effort to help coordinate all those wishing to help, it is supervising donations being passed on to the Red Cross, via collection points including Iceland supermarket.

“One person donated a horse box full of food products at Iceland. The support has been so overwhelming it makes me want to cry,” said one volunteer.

Elsewhere, the Andalucian Rescue Centre for Horses is opening a bank account for the owners of animals affected by the fires.

Visit www.horserescuespain.org or call Claire 635798219.

And a Fire Aid concert is being held on September 10 at Marbella’s Hotel Puente Romano to help those affected. Organised with iTalk FM, details can be found on the station website.
